Crews were able to contain the fire, but the extent of the smoke and water damage has yet to be determined, said Chris Heiman, Development Director for Senior Services of Wichita.

Heiman said the fire originated from the breaker box in the Meals On Wheels kitchen. He estimates the building will be under repair for up to a month.
“The fire comes at a very bad time of year for the over 900 seniors who receive Meals On Wheels,� Heiman said in a news release. “The upcoming holiday season and the potential for inclement weather leave the homebound especially vulnerable.�
While recipients do have emergency meals to get them by on Sunday and Monday, Senior Services is working on a plan to deliver meals on Tuesday and Wednesday.
A refrigerated storage truck will temporarily house frozen meals, Heiman said.

"Generally we have about 70 people who take a route each day and volunteer to do that," said Chris Heiman, Development Director at Senior Services, Inc. "Rarely do we have to cancel our routes, usually just in times like this week. We don't want to put anyone at risk or put anyone out on those roads."

Tuesday and Wednesday the program had to cancel meal deliveries because of dangerous conditions.
"For so many of our clients on Meals on Wheels, the volunteer is the only person they are going to see that day," said Heiman. "So if we have to miss because of weather it could become a life threatening thing for most of these people. It's not just a daily nutritious meal that they receive, it's also a safety check to make sure they're ok and everything's working. Especially in this weather."
Meals on Wheels saw 71 volunteers Thursday, with at least 15 of those first timers. Heiman said the staff there received 150-200 calls from the community to volunteer and are also completely booked for Friday as well.

Chris Heiman, development director for Senior Services Inc.

of Wichita, which operates Meals on Wheels, wishes volunteers could claim 58.5 cents per mile.
"I know for a lot of our volunteers, retired or recently retired, they're kind of on a set budget themselves," she said.
To help compensate volunteers, Senior Services recently increased the per-route stipend from $1 to $3, Heiman said.
"They never used to take it," she said."Now they're taking it."
Meals on Wheels is spending about $500 a week on stipends for volunteers, a relatively new expense for the nonprofit.
It has about 200 volunteers, most of whom have been delivering meals for years, Heiman said.When the agency loses a volunteer, it has a hard time finding a replacement, Heiman said.
"That's probably directly related to gas prices," she said.

"It's been a challenge for us, but we are pleased to say that our service was not interrupted at all," said Chris Heiman, development director for Senior Services.

For the past two weeks, staff members at Senior Services have been trying to find kitchens large enough to prepare 900 meals at once and that had adequate space and proper licensing. They have found a temporary kitchen at Premier Catering, 10109 W. York, southwest of Mid-Continent Airport.
"The service remained uninterrupted, but the process we had to go through to make it happen was a real challenge," Heiman said.
The fire Nov. 22 caused an estimated $200,000 in damages, Heiman said. It is expected it will take two to three months to clean, repair and rebuild from the fire.
"We are looking at replacing an entire electrical system," she said.
Heiman said that half the space at Premiere Catering can be used by Meals on Wheels and should not affect use by the catering company.

Chris Heiman, development director, said time is of the essence in finding a new location.

"It's very crucial, especially this time of year when it's very cold and everyone is busy, that we are out there every day getting those meals to people," Heiman said.
The fire forced operations to the parking lot of senior services. There, volunteers picked up meals to make their deliveries.
Heiman said the organization has a temporary location in mind.
"We do have to go through our insurance to make sure it's an acceptable facility," she said.
